The mission of both companies is to satisfy the requests of OEMs (vehicle manufacturers, engine manufacturers, CNG/LNG/LPG equipment manufacturers, energy equipment manufacturers, etc.), professional operators looking to retrofit vehicles or engines already in use (for example, in industrial and commercial vehicle fleets, public transport, waste disposal, maritime applications, special industrial applications, and energy production plants), and end users with specific application needs. One of the most interesting market segments is that of industrial engines, as even these engines can use alternative, environmentally friendly fuels in their day-to-day operation. The emergence of biomethane, for example, has led to the development of a complete line of solutions for agricultural machinery.
The use of alternative fuels in energy production is just as interesting and promising. It is also a highly topical issue, not least because of the current geopolitical situation. The growing variety of non-fossil fuels of biological or synthetic origin is creating a strong demand for technological solutions for their use as an alternative to traditional fuels. In this context, the Cavagna Group and Ecomotive Solutions are particularly interested in offering systems for the conversion of diesel engines into diesel dual fuel (DDF) engines for use with natural gas, biomethane, LPG, DME, biogas, LNG, hydrogen, and more. Flex-fuel engines are based on tried and tested mechanics, which have been reinterpreted with a view to sustainability in order to enable use with alternative fuels such as natural gas, biomethane, LPG and syngas. Companies that want to play a decisive role in the circular economy must have solutions that allow them to use these energy sources as efficiently as possible.
As the two companies implement their common strategy, they can count on strong synergy forged from the know-how they both bring to the table. Indeed, Ecomotive Solutions focuses on innovative projects that are destined to change the future of mobility by applying pioneering, tailor-made solutions to a wide range of engine types. In this regard, it is particularly important to remember that the goal of transforming transport into a zero emissions industry cannot be achieved by cars alone. It is no coincidence that the EU’s Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy envisages the involvement of all types of transport in reducing emissions, including ships, heavy goods vehicles, and work vehicles. These are precisely the areas of design and manufacturing in which Ecomotive Solutions is a renowned player, in terms of both research and product range. The Cavagna Group, meanwhile, brings not only its technical and application-related know-how in the automotive sector – characterized by integrated solutions for original equipment installation and aftermarket applications – but also the potential of a large industrial group with a widespread presence in international markets and the capability to support new R&D projects and develop institutional and business relations.
